Into tlit- fingers of the Past 

The laughing days of our Present slip; 
Our thoughts and even our friendships yield 

To that obliterating grip. 
But lo ! We snatch away a prize 

From days so quickly growing old. 
A simple volume of our life — 

And leather hinds what the heart would hold.

"Honour and majesty are before Him: strength and beauty are in His sanctuary." 

Book of Psalms. 


"Overhead the tree-tops meet. 
Flowers and grass spring 'neath one's feet." 



"All the sweet nouns and moons we have spent together, 
All the glad interchange of laughter and love 
And thoughts, so grave or fanciful." 




Mentor Boem 

Behind us lies our pathway through the trees. 

Splashed with the sun and shadow we have known 

And gay with echoes of the melodies 

We used to sing in days that now are gone. 

Here where the path into a road grows wide. 

Open to heaven's blue, and strange, and great. 
And made more lovely all along the side 

With bobbing daisy-heads, we hesitate. 

Before us lies the broader life we know 
Only in visions ; here we stand and gaze 

Eagerly in the distance, glad to go. 

And strong, and daring, into future days. 

Jane Iredell Jones.

&fje gistorp of tf)e Clasfsf of 1934 

BEIXG a senior during; the rush of commencement week is almost too much for anybody. From 
the time we first began the series of banquets and closing celebrations we had no time to ourselves. 
Why, there wasn't a place on the campus that wasn't buzzing with plans and ideas and preparations 
forgoing home. Then I suddenly had an idea. The chapel would be a refuge; surely no one would 
be in there now. And there were so many things mixed up in my mind that I had to go off somewhere 
until they straightened themselves out. The chapel was the very place. 

When I had closed the door behind me, I realized someone was playing the organ. The music was so 
soft that I could hardly hear it. Then I recognized the melody. It was "Memories." At once I was 
in the mood of the music. 

My thoughts went back to the beginning of my college days at Saint Mary's. A number of us were 
"old girls," and it gave us a splendid feeling" of superiority to show the new students around the school. 
And besides that, we were Juniors! Being a Senior surely couldn't have been much more satisfying. As 
soon as we had become accustomed to our surrounding, we elected Jane Snyder as president of the 
class. For a while our school life consisted in comforting home-sick girls, noisily greeting old friends, 
and standing in line at the postoffice to get our hooks. Soon we found out what work really was. The 
teiTOr at having to write a sonnet in English M. was widespread. We weren't poets; it was absurd to 
think that we could writel poetry. But we soon learned to do many things that we never would have 
thought of doing before. 

In December an old tradition was revived; the Seniors gave a dance. We weren't Seniors, hut we will 
never forget the occasion. We all grouped ourselves in Smedes windows and on Holt steps (in the rain) 
to gaze at the lighted gym and to comment on everybody's dress and everybody's "rush." If we could 
only have been on the inside 1 Maybe next year. . . . 

Then Christmas holidays arrived. It was exciting to forget all the things we had been doing this 
year and go home again. We had hardly gotten there, it seemed, before it was time to come back. But 
there were Spring Holidays to anticipate. Before long it was "only thirty-three more days, seven hundred 
and twenty more hours, forty-seven thousand, five hundred and ninety more minutes!" Even in that 
time there were more things to do than wa could crowd into our days. Almost on top of exams came 
the Gym Exhibition. We had practiced on it for months. That night all hearts were heating fast, whether 
under starched gym suits or red-dotted clown costumes. 

After Spring Holidays had come and gone, we were all living with one thing in mind — the Junior- 
Senior Dance! Preparations were begun far in advance, and no doubt it will be a long time before we 
forget "Roses of Piclcardy" and the Junior "no-break." It all ended much too soon, and again Saint 
Mary's took on the role of a "female institute." 

Almost before we knew it now, we were taking our final exams. Then Commencement began. We 
couldn't avoid a certain thrill at watching the Seniors set their diplomas, and perhaps we envied them 
just a little, too. But vacation soon monopolized our thoughts. 

Somehow summers always manage to end. Perhaps we did regret having to leave all the good times 
we had had, but it was worth almost anything to get back to school and see who else had returned. We 
were Seniors now! Our superior feeling last year at being Juniors was as nothing compared to this. 
Eliza Lewis was to be our president. And except for the fact that a few of our members from last 
year were missing, this might only have been the return from a long week-end. Life went on very much 
as it bad the year before. We learned of a new honor system, which was being organized by Katherine 
Harding, our Student Body President, and the other members of the honor council under the direction 
nf Miss Dodd. We were especially honored by being the first group installed in this order. 

In December we srave our Senior Dance. At any time during the week before. Seniors could be 
found in the gym throwing, from the tops- of stepladders, the "silver rain" over the streamers or 
searching for a paper of pins that had mysteriouslv disappeared. With the placing of modernistic blue 
and silver decorations around the walls, the setting "'as completed. It could hardly have looked 
better; and when the long-awaited December ninth came, we certainly could not have had a better time. 
When Christmas holidays had come and gone in a flash of fun. and midyear exams were safely behind, 
tlic Dramatic Club presented its masterpiece — a dramatization of "Little Women."' With Mary Louise 
Taylor takinsr the part of "Jo." Marv Pride Cruikshank that of "Marmee" and Eleanor Seairle that of 
"Professor Bhaer," we felt that our class had done a sreat deal toward making it truly successful. 

Perh a jis we are beginning to show signs of the intellectual now, or perhaps we realize what a 
privilege we have received. At any rate, we have been particularly impressed with three of our speakers 
this year. The first was Dr. John Hart, who talked +o our Bible class for an hour after he had spoken 
in assembly. The other two were Bishop Darst and Bishop Penick, whom we all love and revere. 

With the beginning of the new term most of our time was taken up with last minute dashes to read 
magazine articles for Miss Lalor and the confusion that would naturally precede the writing of Senior 
essays. Spring Holidays over, the weather began to get warm. Often now we even summoned enough 
courase to £ret up early in the morning to play tennis before breakfast, and more than once, to our disgust, 
others had been even more energetic than we and had taken possession of all available courts. 

The May Day celebration, which had been omitted for several years, was renewed, and Jane Snyder 
was crowned Queen of the May with Eliza Lewis as her maid-of-honor. With May disappearing in a 
happy confusion, there appeared that fatal exam week, when we hardly dared breathe until we found 
that we really had passed everything. 

Commencement week! It was the most exciting tiling we had ever experienced. Trying on class day 
dresses . . . hearing a Baccalaureate sermon delivered particularly for us . . . sinsinsr "Goodbye School" 
in our caps and gowns . . . marching with the daisy chain. We no longer wonder "why last year's 
Seniors did not rejoice as we did that school was over nor why some of them cried as they autographed 
our annuals for us. 

Mildred Moore, Historian.

Junior Jtnglesf 

MISS POPE with prods and gentle pushes 
Forced us to learn against our wishes 
In English M. this year, dear Reader, 
The form of verse, its rhyme and meter; 
So this, our pompous history, 
(Though it does not pretend to he 
A sonnet or a triolet) 
We wish in verses neat to set. 

As St. Mary's is the best in the land 
We wish to make you understand 
That our class is the best in school: 
We study and obey each rule. 
When first we came, Kack eyed us o'er 
And her surprise grew more and more 
To see a group so smart and true, 
And yet so very charming too. 

So she assembled the Junior Class, 
And after discussion we chose at last 
The statesman, Tyler, to lead us to fame. 
The time flew by; the day soon came 
When we the school did entertain. 
It was the night of Hallowe'en 
And we as witches could be seen. 
The gym was decked in black and gold, 
Kate and Franny our fortunes told. 

Meanwhile we dashed our fingers blue 
In hockey games as Sigma or Mu. 
In basketball we showed our skill 
And gave the sidelines quite a thrill. 
Sometimes we roused Miss Lalor's wrath. 
Or flunked a trifle in our Math. 
When you the following lines have read. 
You'll see in statistics we're far ahead. 


Brooke Allan, we think, is best all-round, 
Tudor Perry can bounce any ball up and down; 
Franny Everett we beg to call to your mind 
Is too good a Mu, her opponents find; 
Two Texas Ranchers we proudly claim; 
And scribbling Letty has won herself fame. 
Despite the fact that we're so fine. 
We have to let the Seniors shine. 


l'u honor them we had a dance 
One April night, full of Romance, 
Now the end of School is here 
And we must close our Junior year. 
As down the steps we now advance, 
With eager hands we grasp our chance 
To be next year, St. Mary's pride 
Full Seniors, grave and dignified. 

P. S. 

We fooled you, this is but a test 
To see who's learned her meter best. 
If you can read this jingle well, 
Then we'll give you a hearty yell. 

Rosalie McNeill.

The E. A. P. Literary Society lias had as its subject for the year 1933-1934 the study of 
modern plays and playwrights of England, Ireland, and the United States. Every third 
meeting is devoted to the lives of two playwrights and a criticism of their writing. 
The other meetings are spent in tiie reading of their plays, in which members of the club 
take the various parts. Short plays arc selected so that complete ones can be read at each 
meeting. During the year each member has charge of at least one program, so that she 
is a real part of the society.

The Sigma Lambda Literary Society lias undertaken this year a comprehensive study of 
the Little Theater movement. Placing greatest stress on the workmanship of one-act plays, 
the members have made an effort to scan briefly the lives of outstanding playwrights and to 
study at least one play by each of them. The method of study chosen by the Society is 
particularly good in that it arouses the interest uf all the members. A play is selected, and 
the members of the Society are assigned roles in it. Although the performances are 
far from perfect, it has been found that such participation on the part of the members gives 
a much clearer idea of the characters of the play than a reading by one member alone.

Btarp of a Mentor 

(Too intimate to be grammatically correct) 

Monday — Slept through with some interruptions from those horrid little Juniors banging doors. So 
hungry all morning but some kind soul brought me two pieces of toast and several sausages — rather 
slim breakfast, for after all a girl must eat. "Went to lunch and movies today. I think Joan Crawford 
is marvelous, and I'd love to look just like her. My mouth is sorta like hers, but I must reduce. Swell 
chocolate fudge sundae at Boone-Iseley's after the picture — thank goodness 'cause we had that unusual 
roast beef again and beets! So tired I just couldn't study tonight. It's S:30, so I guess I'll turn in. 

Tuesday — Terrible day, rained and rained, beginning exactly five minutes after morning walk. Just 
our luck! Also Miss Weise gave us a test, and as usual I was not well acquainted with the subject 
matter under discussion. Rain must affect my appetite: we went to the little store this afternoon, and 
I ale two ice cream sandwiches, a dope, and a pimento cheese sandwich, but that was all right because I 
didn't eat any dinner at all except one piece of pie and a roll. I studied tonight until 8:15 and then 
washed clothes and set my hair. I think I'll cut some bangs. 

Wednesday — Heard from George this morning; he still loves me. and he's coming Saturday. I must 
borrow Betsy's velvet. Miss Pope gave us our test papers back today — the grades weren't very good. 
I got C. She read out some pretty- funny remarks from some of the papers. Somebody said Pope was a 
■'classic" and somebody else said something about the "enclosed couplet." She read something off my 
paper, but I still can't see anything funny about it. We practiced volley ball today and that is 
really the silliest game I've ever seen — I was half an hour late to rehearsal this afternoon and I don't 
think Miss Davis liked it very much. Jane and I took reducing exercises tonight and the book says if we 
keep it up we'll lose ten pounds in two weeks. 

Thursday — So sore that it was a struggle to get out of bed this morning, making me late to breakfast 
which is bad 'cause it's the second time this month. I was also reported for chewing gum in gym along 
with having only one gym sock — can I help it if I've lost the darned thing? Two boxes of food 
on the hall today and I feel a little sick; maybe I'd better go to the infirmary — a rest would do me good. 
The only thing is that I wouldn't, be able to go to town tomorrow and I simply must do that. Studied 
an awful lot tonight for that Bible test — I just can't exigite though. 

Friday — That Bible test was terrible — I didn't study any of the things he asked, and I wrote my head 
off answering the wrong question — and on top of all that we had liver for lunch. Went to sleep in 
French class twice this afternoon. Wonder what's wrong with me. I don't think Miss Weise noticed 
though. I bought the cutest hat at Taylor's this afternoon — it was one of those off-the-face things, and it 
was green. I really shouldn't have gotten it because I don't have a thing in the world that's green 
and I look terrible in off-the-face hats, but it is such a honey. I just had to have it. Mother probably 
won't like it either — I always get blamed for everything. We studied tonight for a little while. 

Saturday — The shock of the year! Mr. Guess up and gives an Ec. test! I'll never be the same, but 
maybe he won't correct the papers. Spent all this afternoon fixing hair and fingernails. In fact I 
didn't even realize that clean-up hour was over and all of a sudden it was time for inspection and we got 
6 before I could even open my mouth, and it was unfair. I hate George! He's the cutest thing in the 
world, but I can't stand him — he was exactly forty-live minutes late, and the first thing he said was, 
"Well, there certainly is more of you than the last time I saw you !" He's the freshest thing that 
ever was, but I tried to be sweet because, after all. May Frolics aren't so far in the distance. We had a 
*well session tonight, and Hal Kemp was the best thing — but about that time who should come around 
the corner but . . .? Yep, you guessed it, and we all went home. 

Sunday — This morning at choir practice I was trying so hard to tell everybody in our row about what 
Georire said and everybody interfered. Finally Mrs. Cruikshank shushed us. "Attitude" again. . . . 
There's no excuse for the way they're actually making us sing a' choir practice now. An out of town 
person preached today and he was the most long-winded man I've ever heard. We had green peas, 
rice, chicken and chocolate ice cream for dinner today. Queer! Did such a great lot of good sleeping 
this afternoon, and then somebody had to wake me up and tell me I had a dale. The date turned 
out to be that dumb Percy Smith. I'd so much rather have slept. The radio was swell tonight, and we 
had a big time playing mound. Bed at ten o'clock. . . . Oh. the humilation of it ! I

The old school among her friendly trees has been serenely enjoying her long summer sleep. 
Now Dr. Smedes 9 ghost is forced from his domain as the halls echo with excited familiar 
voices and shy new ones. Students try out their schedules and roommates and decide that 
it is really a good place after all. even if they end up in the gym instead of in biology 
lah and accuse new roommates of being from Alabama when they are really from Rocky 
.Mount. Identities are somewhat straightened out {and again confused) at the "Old-girl 
New-girl" party — at which the main events are a grand march and food. 

How two-faced some people are! After receiving an invitation to the effect that one is 
"cordially" invited to become a member of the Sigma, or Mu, Athletic Association, and after 
being welcomed in with loud congratulations and a party — oh, the consequences! Empty 
waste baskets, they say, look for somebody's mail, polish shoes (and white shoes are still 
being worn), make beds — in fact, do everything but scrub the floor. And the old girls only 
smile indifferently. Hockey starts soon, however, and the new Sigmas and Mus are as 
enthusiastic as the old ones when they dash madly up and down the stubbly field. 

Juniors will be juniors, but they are temporarily witches at the I lallowe'en party at 
which they entertain. Such people as they invite! They are. for instance, Mae West, the 
Blue Eagle, and two Spirits, who have at the tip of their tongues all the misdemeanors of 
St. Mary's students, and they are not backward about telling them. Who got restricted 
for drinking beer? Who upset her chair at the dinner table, looking at the moon? Who 
wears red ear-rings perpetually, even in swimming? Oh, and while refreshments are being- 
served, those take-offs ! 

Thanksgiving practically steps on Hallowe'en's heels. After church on thai memorable 
Thursday students disperse into various parties, but almost all of St. Mary's winds up at 
Carolina. After the game, back they come to school for a huge dinner — and what a dinner! 
Incidentally, food seems to be the dominating thought in life. One knows it from the extra 


Ninety-five whole days have been marked off the calendars in each student's personal 
method of marking. The time lias rushed by, and it is still rushing. 

The senior dance flares up. The seniors arc in their e;lory, and the unprivileged avidly ga/.e 
at the fairlyland gym done in silver and blue. "Maybe me in a few years," they wistfully 

Christmas is coming. When on the last Sunday afternoon the choral evensong service 
consists of carols and that loveliest of organ pieces, "The March of the Three Wise Men." 
every heart beats in the rhythm of the music. A banquet next arrives — December fourteenth 
— with turkey and cranberry sauce, fried oysters, rice, green peas, buttered rolls, Lady 
Baltimore cake and "bough! ice cream." olives, pecans, celery, coffee with Cream; it must 
go down in history. More Christmas festivities are to come, however: the seniors' pageant 
is followed by a party in the gym around the great, lighted free There appear a "Kitten 
on the Keys," someone "Looking for Shanghai I,i!" and dancers who have never been 
suspected of such talent as they now display. 

On December sixteenth in the half-lighl of early morning the seniors, holding lighted 
candles, sing carols to the rest of the school. In a tew hours taxis are hurrying up, girls 
ire panting under the burden n't heavy-laden suitcases, and the front steps of Smedes Hall 
is the scene of noisy goodbyes. 

Then it is January, and with it comes, inevitably, the reopening of school. One would 
think the girls had been separated tor years. Such shouting, such eagerness to tell it 
all at once, such overflowing of conversation as goes on! Everybody has met somebody 
who knows somebody else. 

There are two weeks of steady, old fashioned studying to be done before exams, so that 
there is little time for homesickness. Alarm clocks ring at queer times; lights go on in the 
middle of the night. Books, notes, and worried frowns are everywhere in abundance. 


Balmy weather and Mrs. Marriott's consolation in the form of extraordinary meals help 
the dreaded week to pass on. 

A new semester arrives and, with it, new students, all of which are celebrated by a 
faculty-student basketball game. Sincere sympathy goes to Miss Fishhurne. Was it that 
her students were too hard on her? Maybe her Latin had been too hard on them. 


The trees begin to bud; a few flowers push upwards in the biology garden, and every- 
body blames the downhill grades on spring fever. The campus is dotted with girls com- 
muning with Nature and watching State College cars go by. 

Suddenly blankets are pulled off the closet shelves; stockings are donned instead of 
socks; and the knitters lay aside spring sweaters and prefer to work in wool. 

Foiled again. Another warm spell delights the school. Then, to the astonishment of all, 
the deepest snow of the year comes to cover the crocuses and daffodils. The "little store' 1 '' 
is raided for its tin can tops, which make excellent sleds. The Mus challenge the Sigmas 
to a snowball tight with Mae West and a companion snow-lady looking calmly on over the 
front campus. 

The time from Christmas until Spring Holidays once seemed interminable, but it is rather 
suddenly over. "A glorious time is had by all," and students return refreshed in mind, 
spirit, and body (new clothes). 

Easter Sunday means the all-white early service, many Easter carols and the "Easter 
Parade." Some florists at least are not going bankrupt. 

Tennis takes the place of basketball and volleyball. These tennis fiends ! Up before 
breakfast, playing till supper, they are incorrigible. But they do obtain enviable suntans. 

The juniors said their time would come, and here it is. The Junior-Senior Dance is an 
Event (with a capital letter). The >34-'35 figure is impressive even against a background 
of funny papers. 


Minutes should certainly be five times as long now. How else can everything be done? 
Time, in the last month of school, is stretched to the breaking point. Picnics, parties, 
banquets, exams, tennis are all crammed together. Each and every class, organization, and 
group must have its own celebration. With Jane Snyder as May Queen, and Eliza Lewis 
as her Maid of Honor, May Day is a lovely success. 

The seniors sit at their own table, have their mail brought to them each morning, and 
spend hours over Commencement invitations and graduation preparations. 

The last week of school brings a maze of speeches and closing affairs that end at last when 
the Chief Marshall proclaims the end of the session. 

"The tumult and the shouting dies," St. Mary's once more sleeps in the quiet of the 
summer sun. Lazy dreams float around the paths; Dr. Smedes' ghost conies out of his exile; 
all is serenely waiting for another year. 



Among us there are some who 

quite surpass 
The rest — superlatives in their own 


Frances Bradley 

"Chic" is the word to fit her style —

This Frances knows the subtleties 

of dress. 

Anna Brooke Allan

A loving world will do what she 


Mary Pride ("riiksiiaxk 

With skill her hands, her head, her 
very heart 

Perform their work till all she

Perky Belle Walton 

With strength in her arms and 

lightness in her feet — 
"When "Pebbles" runs, oh, who 

would dare compete? 

-Mary Louise Taylor 

Nut just her smile, her ways, her 

turns of speech— 
"Our Cutest"' is as near as words

And now the pages are all turned. 

And this our little book is done; 
Yet memories and visions still 

Are lingering sweetly on. 
These are the treasures we have kept. 

So precious while they last. 
And so precariously held 

Away from the ringers of the Past.

What a difference would be seen in the habits and customs of St. Mary's 
students were it not for dependable electric service. You push a button 
and there is an abundance of light. A switch is closed and the motors 
in the chapel or in Clement Hall arc instantly set in motion. By means 
of electric energy health-building rays of the sun are duplicated through 
violet ray equipment at the swimming pool. 

Electric service is accepted and enjoyed without a thought of whence 
it comes. It is as necessary to the comfort and convenience of a student 
as it is to the efficient operation of the home. Were it not for the fact 
that our service is always available at the touch of a switch you would 
be able to appreciate more fully the difference between dependable elec- 
tric service and that upon which limitations are placed, or which is sub- 
ject to frequent interruptions. 

It is our pleasure to serve you well.
